I don't normally post about stuff I buy because I'm a good boy and don't buy more stuff I don't need and have no room for anyway. 

But sometimes I slip up take a peek at Yahoo auctions and before you know it I've gone and done something bad and this arrives at my door and DON'T HIT ME MOMMY I'LL BE GOOD I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SO SORRY YOU'RE RIGHT DADDY LEFT BECAUSE OF ME IT'S ALL MY FAULT BECAUSE I'M BAD I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'm Sorry for the blurry photos.

I'm intrigued by the Computer Games Strategy Plus in the bottom right corner there.  It is sealed in its original polybag, and yet the demo disc on the inside is in a ziplock bag.  Did it really ship that way?

I'm still enjoying spoiling myself by playing through Might and Magic III rather than spend all my free time editing magazines, so don't expect any new scans in the immediate future, but whenever I do get back to it, the first thing on my list is another issue of Dengeki Nintendo64.  While flipping through it today, the article that caught my eye wasn't about the 64 at all, but rather the Nintendo Power peripheral for the Super Famicom.  Not being a Nintendo fanboy, this was the first I'd heard of it, so pardon my ignorance if this is common knowledge, but I thought it was interesting.

It was basically the same concept as the Famicom Disk System, except better, since rather than using a limited-memory disk that required a separate console add-on to play, it could copy games as flash RAM directly onto an actual SFC cartridge that could hold more or less the same amount of data as a regular game cart.  You just took a flash cart to your local convenience store, popped it into the machine at the kiosk, selected which game you wanted from the menu, copied it onto the cart, printed out a receipt, and paid at the register.  The magazine lists 39 games that were available.  Without listing them all here, they're made up of titles from Nintendo, Capcom, Konami, Hudson, Human, and Chunsoft.  There was a Game Boy version as well.

Here's the Wikipedia article I looked up afterwards if anyone else is interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_Power_(cartridge)

Marktrade is retired.  For now, anyway.

Almost all of my American mags are in America, so I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure I threw away all of my GamePros years ago.  Sorry - it was before I'd ever heard of people scanning magazines, and GamePro was never a magazine I cared for (the only reason I had it in the first place was because I got several years of free subscriptions.)

Yeah, back in the late 90s, early 00s, businesses were still learning how to effectively market and advertise on the Internet.  You could get tons of free magazine subscriptions just by clicking on a few ads.  Often times, you could even stack multiple promotions, so your free subscription would last for years.  I probably got around 200 free DVDs just by clicking on ads as well.  Ah, the early days of the Internet...

So I'm in the middle of editing a mag and I just finished stitching together the fold-out poster.  And it's goldurn purty, if I do say so.  If anyone ever wanted to print out a super-big Aya Brea poster for their wall, well now you can.  I've uploaded the full-size pic here (it's BIG):

and here's a much smaller preview:

I wish I had access to a professional printer so I could print my own posters. I know someone on eBay who sells prints of game box art, but they are about $20 a pop. for 18x24. There are several I want, but it gets expensive.

      Hello all,
      My posts have seemed kind of nit-picky recently (missing magazines, missing scans, etc) so here's something a bit more positive.
      On deck to be preserved, Turbo Force #3 (January 1993):

      If all goes well I'll be scanning more saddle-stitched magazines in the coming months. Perhaps with a focus on Video Games & Computer Entertainment but I'll likely mix things up to keep things interesting. I'll have a better idea once I have an opportunity to dig into my collection.
      Cheers,

      So I decided to help get our EGM collection complete, I acquired a lot of stuff and sent a lot to E-Day. But I am going to try and scan some of this stuff myself. And try my hand at editing. I purchased a Canon LiDE 220 scanner. It doesn't have a huge bed. But big enough for magazines.mbut it outputs excellent color and is fast. Uses LED lamp so no warmup times.
      My first issue I'm scanning is EGM 07 the Top Score issue with the codes. I've completed scanning. Now on to editing. I've messed around a it and found straightening and cropping to be pretty fast. And the clone stamp has been working well for fixing blemishes. The colors came out so good I'm not sure if I'll have to color correct much if at all. I'll probrably go through and crop and fix blemishes and straighten first. Then I'll post some images here to get some opinions on color correction options and contrast adjustments before app,using them. Any advice on Photoshop corrections would be appreciated ahead of time to get me started. Or just wait till I post some screenshots and give me some feed back.
      I'm scanning in 500 dpi because it's fairly quick with this scanner. When I'm done editing I plan to resize the images to 1600 pixels wide. Is this still a good standard to use. Should I do more or less. Files sizes maybe could get bigger with the times. But let me know what the site still reccomend and I'll go with that.

      I have listed these here in the hope that some kind soul has the time and patience to edit these (cropping etc) as I sadly don't have the time at the moment.
       
      Note that you will need to click the download pdf button as the quality is much higher in the pdf than the pages you can see on the site.
       
      Total Control 01
      The cover needs re-scanned as my scanner doesn't support the shiny silver:

      I am going to attempt to use my old, slow flatbed scanner to scan:

      GamePro Issue 90 (labeled 100) January 1997. I'm not sure how it will turn out - if it turns out - but we'll see!
